Wasco Arms is a two-story affordable gated community in the San Joaquin Valley. These
open-concept, two- and three-bedroom apartments feature fully equipped kitchens with
dual stainless-steel sinks and gas ranges that give way to nicely appointed dining and living
room areas. Every apartment has its own outdoor space in the form of a patio or balcony,
and they all share access to a pair of laundry rooms, a BBQ area, and two playgrounds.
Plans are underway to implement a host of social services focused on a number of issues
of concern for residents, including job education, health and wellness and food security.
Similarly, a regular slate of community events will help build a sense of fellowship among the
neighbors. As part of its acquisition, Fairstead extended Wasco Arms’ Section 8 protections,
guaranteeing that residents can enjoy long-term continuity of their living situation.
Fairstead has also taken over property management duties. Such day-to-day oversight allows
the company to establish elevated standards of property upkeep and customer service.
Fairstead’s in-house social services teams always strive to create a calendar of events
and slate of services that match the interest and needs of all community residents. That
requires an ongoing dialogue and relationship with the people who live in the buildings
we manage. Our goal is simple but profound: to positively impact the individuals and
families who call Fairstead properties home, whether that means helping with jobs,
school, health, nutrition, or personal finance.
